Comments CommentsArrived prior to 8:30 and was able to park in row #3. Not a long walk to the lift. Changing up inside the lodge is allowed, with outside bag storage. But I just geared up at the car. Got in line at the Polar Express, they started loading the lift about 8 minutes before the posted time. Skied primarily off of this lift today. All of the trails were still open with edge to edge coverage and good depth. The snow started out groomed smooth with a soft top layer. As the day progressed the snow continued to soften and got a bit choppy in areas. The underlying base remained firm, but not icy. It was nice Spring Skiing!

Lift lines were really busy for about the first 2 hours in the morning. By 11 the crowd started to thin out quite a bit, and there was not much of a wait in the afternoon. Many folks said that it was much busier yesterday, as amicus reported in his post. Also Wednesday's reportedly are really busy as many local schools close for "cleaning". I went last Wednesday and will not repeat that again this season.

Wachusett has singles lines, and they actively pair up singles in seat 1 and 4 on each chair. You can always decline if you choose, but most folks paired up.

Really regretting that I didn't purchase a Silver pass to Wachusett for this season. I planned to wait until this Spring and purchase the next years pass which typically includes the rest of the current year. But they are not doing that this year. They are only are selling a rest of season Monday to Thursday pass (Steel Pass). That doesn't work for me as today is probably my last midweek trip to Wachusett this season.

Weather: Temperature started out about 39° at opening and climbed into the 50's. Full sunshine all day. Light wind, not a factor.
